Free

girls-women-mediaGirls, Women, and the Media

Join Capitola Vice Mayor Yvette Brooks, the Santa Cruz County Public Library, and community leaders in a dialogue about the film Miss Representation (2011).

Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film explores how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in influential positions by circulating limited and often disparaging portrayals of women. Bring your insight, questions, and ideas to help us build a more resilient community by supporting the leadership of girls and women. Miss Representation is available on Kanopy, the library’s free online video streaming service. All you need is your virtual or physical library card and password to watch the film. The film is also available on Netflix. While it is not necessary to watch the film before this event, we highly encourage full participation in this discussion.

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they do not have any. — Alice Walker.
